Time to downgrade the threat of this virus and treat it like the flu and that way we can stop counting infections and get on with our lives.

as usual the average person will suffer with higher food and fuel costs and if you like imported stuff then get ready to pay even more again. Japan inc and the governments buddies will all benefit and wont pass on the gains to the workers.

Time to vote these clowns out for once.

Posted in: NPA urges police to avoid impression of racial profiling in questioning people See in context

I see you people being searched all the time around Roppongi with police standing on corners in two's looking for the right looking people to harass and it seems to be Japanese and non Japanese all with a similar look. On the other hand I am a bald white guy who dresses neatly and have never been searched so they are profiling.

If they continue this strategy then they will have to keep locking down and keeping closed borders for ever which for the rest of the world might not be a bad thing.

Lets just live with it without stupid alcohol restrictions and bans. I just got the symptoms yesterday and will get tested today and so far not as bad as a cold. Not looking forward to isolating for 10 days but best to do so.

Posted in: Japan extends entry ban on non-resident foreigners until end of February: Kishida See in context

OldNormalToday 07:35 am JST

I and my 3 children have been forced in a tiny hotel room because of 3 positive pcr test with no symptoms. We were told we must stay here for 10 days or until we can all have 2 negative test in two consecutive days starting after the 6th day.

on the third day they required my negative ten year old to take a pcr test. A woman in full hazmat suit came to our door and woke us up to tell us he is positive (again no symptoms). We will now have to stay for 10 days starting the clock again.

this is hell. Japan has lost the plot and we are being punished for it. After this is over, I will make plans to sell my house and move back to America. There are no human rights here and they treat foreigners and healthy children like lepers.

my children want to see their mother and they need to get out and move around. We are at our wits end. They said if we leave without authorization I will be imprisoned for 6 months.

Sorry to hear but you chose to travel and take your kids on a trip when this could always happen. For the most we are quite lucky to live here when the rest of the world has been in an extreme lock down.
